The average American has a mere three-day supply of food. With the tenuous infrastructure of 'just-in-time' delivery, eliminating this risk is a high priority. Experts agree that at the very minimum, 30 days of stored food is essential. This can be simply accomplished by securing a supply of easy to prepare, palatable meals with a long shelf life. Long-term survival further necessitates a thorough plan including dry-goods, livestock and agricultural self-sufficiency.
